During most six-week periods, two tests will be given.
There will also be graded homework assignments and quizzes and/or special
projects. Grading for each six-week
period will be indicated on that six-week schedule.
As described in the student handbook, letter grades
are assigned on a 10-point scale and semester grades are computed as the average
of the 3 six-week grades and the semester exam.
Homework will be graded using a rubric we will discuss during the first
week of class; you will attach a copy to each assignment you submit.
Tests, quizzes, exams, and projects will all be graded using rubrics
which are consistent with the homework
